RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Newcastle set to extend winning streak Ings not interested in leaving Saints, Southampton manager says Brighton vs. Watford Venue: Amex Kick off: 6:30PMTwo teams with relegation fears will lock horns in the Premier League this afternoon as Brighton & Hove Albion welcome Watford to the Amex Stadium. Brighton is currently 15th in the Premier League table with 26 points, while Watford sit three points behind in 19th ahead of the huge fixture this weekend. Brighton have been widely praised for their brand of football under Graham Potter this season, but their sole focus over the next few months will simply be on securing their status as a top-flight team. A run of just one win from their last 10 league matches has seen the Seagulls slide down the table, with 26 points leaving them in 15th position ahead of this weekend’s four top-flight fixtures. Only Watford (5) and Norwich City (4) have actually won fewer Premier League matches than Brighton (6) this term, which will surely be a concern for Potter heading into their final 13 fixtures. They came from 3-1 behind to pick up a point away to West Ham United last weekend, but the result at the London Stadium followed a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Bournemouth on January 21. Brighton did run out 3-0 winners in the reverse match earlier this season, though, and will be looking to secure their first league double over Watford since the 1990-91 campaign. There is no question that Watford have improved under Nigel Pearson’s leadership, with the 56-year-old picking up four wins and three draws from his 11 matches in charge of the club. The Hornets have not won since beating Bournemouth on January 12, though, and have lost their last two against Aston Villa and Everton. They actually led 2-0 against the Toffees last weekend only to concede three times in what would have been a difficult result to take. There is simply no downplaying the importance of this match considering that Watford’s next two in the Premier League are away to Manchester United and at home to Liverpool. Pearson has given them more than a fighting chance, though, as despite sitting 19th, they are only two points outside of the bottom three and would move out of the relegation zone with a victory this afternoon. Watford have only lost one of their last seven away league games to Brighton, meanwhile, recording three wins in the process, although their last match at the Amex finished in a goalless draw in February 2019. Brighton possible XI: Ryan, Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo, Stephens, Propper, Trossard, Mooy, Gross, Murray. Watford possible XI: Foster, Mariappa, Kabasele, Cathcart, Masina, Chalobah, Capoue, Pereyra, Doucoure, Deulofeu, Denney.Tags: AMex StadiumBrightonGraham PotterPremier LeagueWatford
Residents of Georgetown can now pay rates and taxes via the Mobile Money Guyana (MMG) app.This was made possible through a collaboration between the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) and GTT, and the initiative was officially launched on Tuesday.Information Technology (IT) Manager attached to M&CC, Adunni Christian said the action was taken to enable persons to pay monies owed to the M&CC through MMG. Christian noted that while the M&CC has begun with the payments of rates and taxes, in the near future the Council would move towards other types of payments that could be made via MMG.GTT MMG Specialist Kester Abrams“All customers need to know or understand is their account number which can be found on a receipt or the demand notice. That account number, when you make payments to Mobile Money from outside, it will allow us at M&CC to see where you are attaching these payments to,” he explained.According to Christian, one of the main reasons the MMG platform was chosen was the fact it was known to be a safe application for transacting business. He further explained that “there is no issue in terms of your security or other people accessing your account because as you know, the Mobile Money platform has been proven to be quite secure in the past.”Christian also pointed out that persons desirous of uplifting their payment receipt after completing their transaction can do so by visiting the M&CC.Specialist-in-Charge of MMG at GTT, Kester Abrams said the company was pleased to be able to further expand its services to the residents of Georgetown. He also disclosed that GTT was looking to develop its services to other municipalities across Guyana.M&CC IT Manager Adunni Christian“We have also reached out to the Ministry of Communities and we will be meeting with them in the near future to actually talk about some of the [Neighbourhood Democratic Councils] NDCs; [Regional Democratic Councils] RDCs and municipalities outside of Georgetown so that we can actually have all rates and taxes payment coming Through Mobile Money,” he stated.The services are currently available, and persons who wish to have more clarity on the new services are being encouraged to visit the M&CC office.
